How to store homemade Italian Seasoning

Store your own homemade Italian seasoning the same way you’d store any store-bought seasoning mixes. Store in a cool dark spot, typically the spice cupboard where other spices are stored.

Depending on the amount of seasoning you’ve made a small or large mason jar will work perfectly. Don’t have a mason jar? An empty spice jar with the label removed is a great way to reuse it.

Most importantly storing dried herbs in an airtight container will keep them fresh and tasty longer.

Just make sure the container you’ve chosen is large enough and seals tightly.

What is the main Italian seasoning blend?

You can still enjoy the wonderful flavors of your own Italian seasoning if you don’t have all of the ingredients listed for this recipe. The combination of the following dried Italian herbs will still bring life to your dishes.

  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary

My recipe for Italian seasoning has black pepper added. We like the extra bite of flavor black pepper brings to this recipe. Other great additions are garlic powder and red pepper flakes.

Are there other spice blends I can include in Italian seasoning?

Yes! In addition to the ingredients in this recipe, you can add some other flavorful spices to boost it up a notch. Personalize this to your taste.

Spice: Add some warmth with red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper powder.
Garlic: If you love garlic, add garlic powder or dried minced garlic to this mixture.
Onion: Another flavor boost you can add is onion powder or dried minced onions.
